She was predeceased by her Father and Mother, Harvey and Rose McIntyre, her brothers Gerald and Richard and sister Kay Mohr.
In Shirley’s younger days she loved spending time getting into “mischief” with her closest friends, many stories over a bottle of wine could be told of the “road trips” they would take and the laughs they would share. She also enjoyed the frustrating game of golf, gardening and hiking.
Shirley’s family would like to thank the nurses and care givers at Evergreen for their thoughtful and compassionate care they provided Mom, it was wonderful to see the smile they would bring to her face as they would banter with her in the halls!
Cremation to follow and at Shirley’s request there will be no service.Obituary
